Inmate beaten, 2 guards at SVSP slightly injured breaking up assault

AP Two correctional officers at a central coast prison are being treated for minor injuries suffered while breaking up an inmate assault.

The state corrections department said the attack at Salinas Valley State Prison sent both officers and the inmate victim to area hospitals on Tuesday.

Corrections officials say two inmates, identified as 35-year-old Jesus Ruiz and 22-year-old Manden Torres, attacked the victim with weapons they had fashioned themselves. The victim was sent to the hospital with cuts to the chest and head.

Both suspects are serving life sentences for murder from Tulare County.

Officers used pepper spray to break up the attack at the prison, which is 130 miles southeast of San Francisco. One had scratches on his arm, while the other was cut on her chin.
